[linux-dvb] Some progress on the PCTV 200e driver. Anyone else working on it?

I would like to contact someone developing also the driver to share
information, and to give a kick to the driver forward. I am heavily
torturing the device...


 I have submitted a patch to the linux-dvd distribution list I think solving the "NULL pointer dereference"

 I am getting initial answers from the device. I am able to attach the mt352 (demod).

It seems that the first byte to send on the USB for reading is "0x02".
For example with these sequence:

0x10 0x00

0x15 0x00

0x16 0x01

0x02 0x3e 0x01 0x01 0x7f

I can read the mt352 CHIP_ID and register the mt352.

The:

0x10 0x00

0x15 0x00

0x16 0x01

Seems to be needed, otherwise I don't get the right answer if I don't send those first.

The answer is:
0x02 0x00 0x13

So the 3rd byte is the value of the register, 0x13 is the right CHIP_ID.


BR,
Juan

Hello,

can anybody help me to download the drivers for WinTV Nova-S-Plus card for
Linux OS.
Tell me from where i have to download the drivers.
Thanks for your reply.

Hi,

what version of linux kernel are you using?
It is included with the kernel for a long time.
Look/google for cx88.

I have that card and had issues with it on one mainboard (Intel 965
Chipset, Dualcore CPU, 64bit). It lost signal lock very often. Noone
seemd to care on this ML, so I dont know the maintenance status of it :-(

It works flawlessly on an other Motherboard (Intel Singlecore, 32bit)
though.

Good luck!

Joachim Banzhaf

Hi,
I am using RHEL 3.4.4-22.
kernel version: 2.6.9
The machine which am using is HP G3 server.
Dual-Core and Quad-Core Intel Xeon 5X00 sequence processors

i have searched for cx88 driver and got two tar files.
cx88-0.0.3.tar.gz and cx88-0.0.4.tar.gz.
is this is the one required driver.
I don't know how use this.
can u help me out.

I've been using this driver for more 5 months, around 1 hour per day with Kaffeine.
Kaffeine did hang now and then but I never had any kernel oops, I don't think I had to replug the device... so, there are good signs, but no guarantee.


The two frontends are available but the diversity stuff is not yet handled, I hope I'll have some time next month. The signal quality is as such not better than other devices.

This driver works with :
- Pinnacle Dual DVB-T diversity
- Terratec Cinergy DT USB XS diversity ( as reported by Tim K?hler )
- Hauppauge Nova TD USB ( as reported by Janne Grunau )


If anyone has one of these devices :
- Emtec S830 Diversity (there is a DibCom logo on the box :-)
- Techgear diversity TV Stick

... [s]he should give it a try as well (with the correct USB ID values...)

Just my 2 euro-cents.

Hi,

I have a Compro DVB-T220 card which I'm trying to get working on
openSUSE 10.2 + vanilla 2.6.22.

Looking at Compro website it seems like it's almost identical to the
T100 which does not have the tuner screen can, remote wake and has a
smaller remote.
Best card pictures are on:
http://www.comprousa.com/New/en/product/t100t220/t100-Features.html
http://www.comprousa.com/New/en/product/t100t220/t220-Features.html

Daniel Paull posted this about T100:
http://www.mail-archive.com/linux-dvb@linuxtv.org/msg23212.html

As my T220 has an saa7130hl and mt352, and in light of above, I assumed
the T220 uses a qt1010 also, hidden under the can.

I hacked around with some source code to add a T220 card ID and get the
saa7134-dvb.c code to dvb_attach an mt352 and a qt1010. The mt352 and
qt1010 code seem happy that they've found their devices and added
printk's show that they're being read / written to OK on load and dvbscan.

Doing a dvbscan gives "tuning failed" messages.

I didn't expect a miracle from my hacks and I'm in need of some info. /
guidance.

Looking at the mt352 datasheet gives no info. re. programming this. As
the mt352 code obviously does this, where did the info. come from? Also
the qt1010: I can't even get a chip data sheet on the web. The qt1010
code looks like some clever reverse engineering has been going on. If
this is the case, don't the chip mfrs or Compro help?

>From what little info. is on the mt352 datasheet it looks like it can
take clever control of the tuner via secondary I2C rather than having it
on the 7130 bus. I don't know if that's what the ".no_tuner      = 1,"
config. option changes but with it set I get qt1010 printk output at
every tune attempt (in addition to mt352) rather than just at the start
of dvbscan.

Here's some dmesg O/P from my hacks. Included are "mt352_*" and
"qt1010_*" from my printk's but I left out the later ones resulting from
the "mt352_*_init":

I am an electronic eng. with a reasonable bit of programming exp. Can I
help this along?
Is it a big job to add support for T220(T100?)? What's involved?
I have no clue re. tuner / demod operation / programming methods and
without the info. / understanding the driver developers obviously have
there's nothing more I can do a this stage.

Ok, I understand what I did wrong now...I assumed that each byte of
filter[x] was an independent table id filter, but each is for a different
byte of the section (so the filter can match on more than just the
table_id).

Hi,

I have seen some cx88 drivers in a Suse 2.6.5 Kernel, so, I guess RHEL
2.6.9 has them, too. Some RHEL guy on the list?
If they do, you should find something with a command like this:

root at job6 ~
# find /lib/modules/ -name '*cx88*' -print
/lib/modules/2.6.20.7-smp/kernel/drivers/media/video/cx88
/lib/modules/2.6.20.7-smp/kernel/drivers/media/video/cx88/cx88-blackbird.ko
/lib/modules/2.6.20.7-smp/kernel/drivers/media/video/cx88/cx8800.ko
/lib/modules/2.6.20.7-smp/kernel/drivers/media/video/cx88/cx8802.ko
/lib/modules/2.6.20.7-smp/kernel/drivers/media/video/cx88/cx88xx.ko
/lib/modules/2.6.20.7-smp/kernel/drivers/media/video/cx88/cx88-vp3054-i2c.ko
/lib/modules/2.6.20.7-smp/kernel/drivers/media/video/cx88/cx88-alsa.ko.deact
/lib/modules/2.6.20.7-smp/kernel/drivers/media/video/cx88/cx88-dvb.ko
...

A command "modprobe -v cx88xx" should show some insmod messages, and/or
an "lsmod | grep cx88" should display cx88 related modules loaded in
your kernel.

As I said, you most probably need no tar archive. The driver should be
in your kernel already.
If it is not, or you want a newer version, you can download, compile and
install it from the linuxtv website. It is not cx88 specific. These are
all dvb drivers and infrastructure at once.
 
IIRC, it was something like

wget tarFile from linuxtv.org website
untar tarFile
cd untaredDirectory
./configure
make
sudo make install

modprobe -v cx88-dvb

It's been a while, so please see the details about that on the
linuxtv.org wiki. That is where I read about all that, back then...

Bye,

Joachim

Hi all,
Thanks for all ur reply.
Ok i will try as per u suggested.
and then will be back if any problem persists.

now after inserting the wintv nova-s-plus card.
i tried to run xawtv -hwscan command which will list all the cards
connected.
but for this wintv nova card its showing
Driver = /dev/video0; Device = UNKNOWN/GENERIC
what is this. is that not identifying it since there is no driver, or
someother problem

Thanks and Regards
Thiru...
